"Except the LORD build the house, they
labour in vain that build it" -- Psalm 127:1
WROS - The ROSE of Jacksonville was given birth by the Lord Jesus Christ at 6:00am, May 5, 1980. God ordained, established and built every aspect and fiber of this radio station. Every ministry, program, and advertiser has been given by God to establish and sustain The ROSE of Jacksonville. This station was built upon the foundation of God's Word and especially the scripture, Psalm 127:1. My very heartbeat, breath, sanity, and very existence totally depends on my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. As long as I am breathing, my one desire is to glorify the Lord. He gave me my first breath: I want to give Him my last.
